Supercars aren't cool. Supercars which look like the current Corvette ZO6, aren't much faster, but cost 4 times as much definitely aren't cool.

Its not about the looks, or charisma its about the pedigree. Its sub zero.

Salute, Giordano.

Modern Ferraris can be a bit naff, with Peugeot grins and cheesy F1-inspired stuff everywhere. But I couldn't give this less than sub-zero because it looks awesome. =)
If you could afford one of these and some yokel in his bargain bin pushrod Corvette wanted to give you a straight line drag race, I don't know that you'd be too concerned. Your mate with the Bugatti Veyron likewise doesn't care that a boyracer with a boosted-to-death Skyline can get the same 1000hp with even more spare change.

Uncool - Its a GTO in nothing more than name, unlike the GTO's that have gone before....

It look horrific and you can bet that at some point in the near future a footballer will end up with one, even though they are limited numbers

Too right!

Purely based on performance stats and styling:

If I was to actually drive one, may have a different verdict.

It's quick. It's exclusive. It's a Ferrari. Those three things alone make it cool.

But to my eyes anyway, there are better looking supercars out there.

Couldn't agree more, I cannot seeing it living up to it's iconic predecessors. How long do you think it will be before we hear that the latest Man Utd/City/Liverpool star has crashed his in the Manchester Airport tunnel?

A perfect example of why, if I had the money, I would but an AM, a Maserati or a Lamborghini and not a Ferrari.

I can't fathom who they think would want such a gruesome looking car?

I'd rather buy a much cooler 599 GTB and save myself a couple of hundred thousands!

The carbon fibre roof and the bonnet vents do make the 599 look better, and the GTO badge will mean it's always worth more, but yeah I'm sure the asking price premium over a regular 599 is considerable! =|

A Ferrari, meh.

It looks like a Corvette, I'd rather have one of those.

Seriously uncool.
